The RODE NT1A raises the bar for value-priced mics! The NT1A Anniversary Model is a complete redesign of the now legendary NT1 classic studio microphone. From the new nickel plated body to the state of the art surface mount electronic circuitry, the NT1A will leave you asking ‘how can RODE offer a microphone that sounds this good, for so little money’? The RØ DE NT1A, Winner of the Electronic Musician 2004 Editor’s Choice Award and the world’s quietest studio condenser microphone. This redesigned version of RØ DE’s classic NT1 has only 5 dBA of self-noise.
